Contrary to the swirling rumors, a representative for the New Edition member claims the song was written a while back and its music video will feature his fiancee Alicia Etheridge.
Bobby Brown pours cold water on the rumors suggesting that his newly-released song "Don't Let Me Die" is an ode to his ex-wife Whitney Houston. The New Edition member denies the report through his representative.
To E! News, the rep clarifies that the song was written a while back before the New Jersey singer passed away. Its music video was filmed six months ago and it will feature his fiancee Alicia Etheridge. The clip was previewed on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" recently, and is expected to come out sometime soon.
Bobby showcased the song when visiting "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on May 16. He will include it in "The Masterpiece", his first solo studio album since 2007's "Forever". The CD is scheduled to be released in the United States on June 5.
He was rumored singing about Whitney due to his brokenhearted lyrics in the song. "I guess I (messed) up pretty bad/ I didn't know who you were/ I didn't know what we had," he sang. "Now I'm stuck living in the past/ Trying to get the pieces back/ But I guess now you're gone."
